Calcium Chloride has some solubiltiy, but the way "Le Chatelier's" principle works is you do something (add something, remove something) then predict the effect.

So, if you added Ag+ ions, you'd predict greater amount of Ca+2 ions in solution (AgCl precipitates Cl- ions and drives Equilibirum forward)...or if you added NaCl, you'd expect fewer Ca+2 ions (common ion effect).

However, your question doesn't have an altered state, so Le Chaeliers principle isn't considered yet.
